Alexis Sanchez presence won't change game vs. Man United - Eric Dier

Alexis Sanchez presence won't change game vs. Man United - Eric Dier

Both sides experienced contrasting fortunes when taking on League Two clubs away from home in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round at the weekend, with United easing past Yeovil Town with a 4-0 win on Friday night before Spurs drew 1-1 against lowly Newport County. When it comes to the big games, the chance to be centre of attention, you know he's up for it.

The 24-year-old, who netted his first goal against United at White Hart Lane last term, has had the most shots of any player in the Premier League this campaign (133) and the Reds defence will need to keep him quiet.

Mkhitaryan, 29, said in an interview with UEFA back in 2009 that he wanted to play for Arsenal and he has now turned that dream into reality.

"The pitch was fine from the beginning", he said. I think everyone thinks the same in this country. We are playing well and we deserved these results. Once you get into the game, it goes to the back of your mind.

It will be a very challenging game of football. For us, a frustrating one.

Jose Mourinho was full of praise of his newest recruit after he made his debut days after signing from Arsenal. And even though he is an absolute animal in the gym, and a phenomenal footballer, I am more anxious about the values he portrays in moments like this, than how much money he earns. From then on, we knew it was going to be more hard.

"The kid is having a hell of an experience at every level so an fantastic future waits for him and being surrounded by these players can only help him".

"That's our objective. Are we going to reach, to agree?"

Shaw admitted it has been tough coming up against Alexis in training, but he has relished facing one of the world's best attackers whose arrival - he feels - can only benefit the team.

But now that Leroy Sane has joined Gabriel Jesus on the sidelines with an injury sustained in the FA Cup on Sunday, City is short of attacking options.

We will probably never see a team like Leicester City winning the Premier League again - not in my lifetime anyway. Obviously you don't play against them very often so it's a completely new experience. Considering their recent form they could be considered as favourites, but Tottenham is not an easy opponent, and they will surely try to leave points at home as well. It is hard to get the balance right but the structure is in place if they do. "But we should have been doing the same things from the start".
